July 8, 2023

San Diego's 77-year-old The Lafayette Hotel, Swim Club & Bungalows will unveil on July 12 following a nine month closure and $31 million renovation by owners Consortium Holdings (Ironside Fish & Oyster, Raised By Wolves). Check out the first look inside what is sure to be San Diego's hottest boutique hotel. 

San Diego's Consortium Holdings hospitality group closed the Lafayette Hotel on October 1, 2022 to perform a top-to-bottom renovation of the 2.5 acre property, including overhauling each of the 139 guest rooms. Purchased by CH for $25,815,000 in early 2021, The Lafayette now looks like a decadent, high-class brother and boasts eight new food & beverage establishments, including a posh lobby bar & cafe, a 24-hour classic American diner, a luxurious Parisian-style restaurant, a live music venue, an old-school bowling alley, a swanky new pool bar, an intimate chef's table dining experience, and an Oaxacan-inspired eatery & mezcal bar.
